Officer Mike Badger, Crime Stoppers Coordinator for Sangamon and Menard counties.

As some of you may know, Crime Stoppers recently announced that the maximum reward for tips leading to the arrest of persons has been increased from the old maximum of $1000 to a new maximum reward of $2,500. This new maximum reward is permanent and is not tied to any specific case or category of crimes. If you have any information about a serious criminal matter such as homicide or kidnapping, or crimes with aggravating circumstances such as those with youthful or elderly victims, or even matters pertaining to gun violence, Crime Stoppers now has an option to pay you an amount well above the old $1000 limit. As always, we guarantee anonymity to our tipsters- there is no way we could give out any information about who you are because when we take a tip anonymously, we never get your name.

So if you have any information about criminal activity, call Crime Stoppers  at 788-8427 or leave a tip on this website (cashfortips.us). Remember we want your information, not your name- and now we’ll pay you up to $2500.
